The Difference Between Teaching & Commanding
In general, employees in the workforce feel most comfortable being told what to do. This branches off from schooling and the certain protocols students were taught to abide by. However, in a workforce simply delivering immediate, short-term results is not enough to stimulate growth and development for individuals.
According to an online quiz created by the Glenn Llopis Group and taken by over 500,000 people, employees are most proficient at implementing work they are assigned to. They lack the strategic focus and ambition to grow opportunities out of initial tasks.
Most people have mastered execution, they just need to be provided with the tools and support to carry out responsibilities beyond what is asked and construct their role within the company. Employees are inspired when given the opportunity to learn new things and discover their authentic influence. So don’t command, and teach instead; then the workplace will truly reach its peak performance levels.
